Vienna, Third Italian Literature Festival

Vienna, Terza Edizione del Festival di Letteratura Italiana
Vienna, Terza Edizione del Festival di Letteratura Italiana

The Odeon Theatre in Vienna hosted the Third Italian Literature Festival ”La Fonte”, organised by the Italian Cultural Institute in Vienna and the cultural associations “Librai in corso” in Rome and “Libellula” in Vienna, with the support of the Embassy of Italy, the Permanent Mission of Italy to International Organisations and the Permanent Mission of Italy to the OSCE.

The Festival was the result of an intense organisational activity involving authors, agents, Italian and German language publishers, translators, moderators, interpreters and booksellers, as well as institutions (such as the library network of the city of Vienna) and local economic operators.

The event featured eleven Italian authors active in the fields of fiction, essays, comics and children’s books – in order of appearance: Serena Dandini, Alessandro Barbero, Dacia Maraini, Benedetta Tobagi, Domenico Dara, Fabio Genovesi, Manuele Fior, Stefano Mancuso, Silvia D’Achille, Davide Morosinotto and Gianrico Carofiglio. A special event was also planned to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Elsa Morante’s novel La Storia.
